At Park Creek, official groomer and first man Adam got everything copacetic for classic skiers with excellent tracks set on all ski trails on Monday, January 7th. He was heading out to touch up skating lanes on the 8th. At Alturas Lake, new groomer Chad rolled through deep new snow on the ski trails there on Monday, only getting lightly stuck at times. And finally, while he waiting for things to warm up outside on Tuesday morning, aging groomer Davinius prepared to take his turn on the Alturas ginzu by eating lightly heated bacon and cheddar scones and meditating on the words of the ancient Chinese poet Su Dongpo on the occasion of his 982nd birthday.
“The voices of the river valley are the Buddha’s wide and long tongue,
The form of the mountains is nothing other than his pure body.”
